Orphan Film Symposium

the Orphan Film Symposium (Dan Streible and colleagues)

Audiovisual documentation generated at the Orphan Film Symposium, as well as films and videos screened at these events. The most recent event was the 9th Orphan Film Symposium ("Orphans 9"), on the theme The Future of Obsolescence, hosted by EYE (Film Institute Netherlands) in Amsterdam, March 30 - April 2, 2014.

The Orphan Film Symposium is a biennial gathering of scholars, archivists, preservationists, curators, media artists, documentarians, librarians, collectors, students, and others devoted to saving, studying, and screening neglected film and video.

See www.nyu.edu/orphanfilms

The University of South Carolina hosted the first five events, beginning in 1999 with “Orphans of the Storm: Saving ‘Orphan Films’ in the Digital Age.” New York University (Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Cinema Studies) became the host institution in 2008. The Orphan Film Project involves partners -- schools, archives, labs, and individuals -- collaborating year round to identify, research, preserve, screen, and make accessible all manner of neglected moving images. These include outtakes, newsreels, home movies, experimental works, educational and sponsored films, scientific and medical recordings, silent and independent films, and other orphaned works.
